Ep. 722 - Beau Is Afraid

May 16, 2023, 06:00 PM

David, Devindra, and Jeff react to the news that director Louis Leterrier might listen to The Filmcast (check out Germain's io9 interview here). Then, they discuss the new Blackberry film, the second season of Yellowjackets and whether Baby J  is a great comedy special or a canny PR exercise (or both). Finally, we discuss Ari Aster's latest film, Beau Is Afraid.
